ForumMusic/Movies/TV/Books ► Know Any Good Comedians (standup or otherwaise)?
I don't. I haven't laughed in 15 years.
I like Mike Birbiglia
Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean is a classic if that's your style
I like Joe Wilkinson, Jon Richardson, Sean Lock, Romesh Ranganathan, Bill Bailey, Paul Foot, Diane Morgan.
John Mulaney is incredibly popular for a reason.
Who is the comedian that played the same song 20something times on a jukebox?
That was John Mulaney
So it was.
Dave Chappelle is the GOAT as Kevin Hart rightfully said. Patrice O'Neal is a legend.

Doug Stanhope is actually underrated.

Bill Burr is mostly great although his stuff loses some bite as he gets older and mellows out and that's not all bad, people are allowed to grow and change.

Funny female comedians are more difficult to find, but they are out there. I remember Kristen Schaal being very funny. Some of the commercially successful ones like Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, etc. just aren't that funny and I think its unfunny women getting a huge spotlight that lends to the myth that women aren't funny.

I haven't seen Kate McKinnon's standup, but she seems very talented and funny on SNL and could be worth looking into.
In terms of female comedians I think Bec Hill, Lucy Beaumont, Holly Walsh. But Diane Morgan's bonkers deadpan is on top for me.
Joe Wilkinson is a comedy hero. He's like a burnt-out Monty Python.
